Hygiene and cleanliness are two important aspects in both appearance and also the maintenance of good health. From eating right, to showering, to regularly washing hands, there are many things that we can do to ensure that we are somewhat bacteria-free. Even though showering and bathing have long been associated with the cleaning process, there are several things that we may be doing wrong.
From when to moisturize, to how you dry yourself, here are several ways that your cleaning process might be counterproductive.
Here are 10 everyday things that you might have been doing wrong in the shower.
1. Some people are under the impression that since water and body soap are running over their feet, there is no need to put in direct cleaning work on those stinky feet. But that is a huge no-no.
Getting in between your toes is essential when cleaning because that is where germs and bacteria can fester. Make sure to use a loofah or a cloth to clean and scrub your feet and be sure to wring those towels out!
2. Everyone washes their face in the shower right? I mean, water is going to get on your face anyways so why not give it a good scrub down? Well, it’s because you’re probably showering in hot water when experts recommend cleaning or washing your face in lukewarm water.
Furthermore, if you’re using face wash, that’s probably being mixed with your shampoo and/or conditioner which may cause adverse effects because it confuses the skin and affects the quality of the product. And lastly, an excessive amount of water while washing your face can lead to dehydration!
